Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2018 via mobile

My kids really enjoyed the activities here especially the make your own instant cup noodle. You get to color/design the cup and choose broth flavor and garnishings. Then they put your creation into sealer. You get to put your cup into an inflated protective pouch with strap, which you assemble yourself. There was also an eatery where you can sample the different regional products of the company, like Vietnamese pho, Indonesian lahksa, etc. There was also a replica of the shack where Mr Nissin (sorry, forgot the founders' name) where he created the first instant ramen. And the room of ALL the different packaging of company's products since day one! Plenty of other exhibits too, but as usual, all in Japanese. Please put sub titles!!

The museum presents a detailed history of instant noodles which was made interesting even for kids. The highlight of our visit was when we made our own receipe of cup noodles and designed our own cup. There was also a different session for preparing the noodles, but weren't able to try that one.

So many compatriots have boxes of Nissin Cup Noodles-- where were they from? Yokohama! Boths kids and adults adore this place. We visited it again, this time bringing our godsons; take note we are not from Japan, so you can imagine how wonderful this is!

This museum caters to kids - lots of them! - but adults will find the history and exhibits interesting enough. If you don't want to spent 45 minutes making your own custome CupNoodles souvenir with hundreds of children (it costs extra), you can download the English guide with the free wi-fi and QR code they give you at the ticket counter and wander through on your own. All the exhibits are in Japanese so this was nice to have. You start with a short animated movie clip of the founder's story and guiding principles, and then you enter into the museum itself. There's a noodle bar to try different types of noodle dishes from around the world - reasonably priced - and a gift shop teeming with everything you could want related to CupNoodles. I spent about an hour, which was plenty.

It was alot more interesting learning about the history of cup noodles than i first thought, it was also pretty funny to make my own noodles.
It didn't matter that i cant read or fully understand japanese, because almost everything also had an english translation.
